Join us on Sunday, October 27, 2019: 1:00 to 3:00 PM
Our Lower School Open House is designed for you to experience our school and to learn more about our program and community.
We have several 15-minute presentations scheduled, and you can attend as many as you'd like. In addition, Lower School classrooms and playgrounds are open and staffed by faculty and current parents throughout the afternoon.
We are glad to show you our spaces, talk about the curriculum, and answer any questions you may have. It's a family-friendly event, and children are welcome to attend.
NOTE: RSVPs help us plan and make your registration faster but are not required.
The presentations below have been offered in prior years. Several will repeat this year along with several new ones. We're sharing them to help give you a sense of the afternoon's choices and structure.
